WMUR’s John DiStaso reported Tuesday that Gov. Chris Sununu auctioned off his family leave veto and two flags flying at the State House that day at a July 4 GOP fundraiser in Wolfeboro.
The three items reportedly raised more than $1,000 for the Winnipesaukee Republican Committee.
Sununu said there is nothing wrong with that.
Holly Shulman, spokesman for the New Hampshire Democratic Party, which posted the video on YouTube, said she wasn’t surprised.
“I wish I could say I was surprised, but we’ve known for a long time that Sununu has been offering up his vetoes to the highest bidder.
“Whether it’s Sununu’s budget veto that benefits his corporate special interest donors at the expense of taxpayers and New Hampshire schools, his net metering veto sponsored by his corporate donors, or his veto of paid family leave, Sununu is working only for the highest bidder at the expense of everyone else.
“In case Chris Sununu needs a reminder which it seems like he does, the job of the governor of New Hampshire is to work to help the people of New Hampshire – not to recklessly veto every bill that comes to his desk in order to enrich the Republican Party or his own donors,” Shulman said.
